It is able to rapidly induce photochemical and photothermic effects in the deep tissue.
The specific thermal capacity of both the uncompatibilized and compatibilized blends was evaluated by the photothermic technique in order to verify the influence of the compatibilizer agent in this thermal property.
The studied problem consists in solving a photothermic coupled system (light, nanowire, and heat) taking into account the physical parameters of the system (i.e., permittivity of materials, material conductivity, laser wavelength, and laser power).
